Tropical forest monitoring is a critical tool to gain insights in how these forests adapt to climate and land-use change.

Study sites in tropical Africa are currently too limited, specifcally regarding research on liana impact on carbon sequestration potential. This project aims to engage local young academics in monitoring activities in DR Congo and participate in a global monitoring network
